LTD To Discontinue Bus Ads

Elizabeth Gabriel

Transit busses in Eugene and Springfield will soon run without advertisements on them. Lane Transit District is phasing out the use of exterior bus ads starting in July. The agency said with revenue falling, it costs more to run the ad program than it takes in. 

"Since the pandemic delivered shrinking advertising revenues, it no longer makes good business sense to continue the bus advertising program,” said Aurora Jackson, LTD’s General Manager. “We appreciate the businesses and nonprofit organizations that have advertised on LTD buses over the years."
